Cognitec Face Recognition System Supports Macau Casino Security

Security staff receive real-time alerts and

can deny entrance to the detected individual.

MACAU & LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cognitec’s highly specialized face recognition technology

FaceVACS-VideoScan was selected to strengthen physical security measures

in major Macau casinos by alerting security staff in real time about

banned persons entering the premises.


At the expo during the same event, on February 23 and 24, Cognitec is

showing a live demonstration of the technology in booth 12/13 and

invites gaming security professionals to talk to our staff about

existing installations and product benefits.

In partnership with Melco Crown Entertainment, Cognitec supported the

large-scale design and implementation efforts on site, resulting in

multiple efficient system installations that now successfully prevent

losses and criminal activities.

Cognitec develops market-leading face recognition technologies and

applications for enterprise and government customers around the world.

In various independent evaluation tests, our FaceVACS® software has

proven to be the premier technology available on the market. We are proud to

deliver the first system of its kind in the casino market.”

Leroy Daniel, Executive Director, Surveillance Operations at Melco Crown

Entertainment, will speak about the system during his talk “How we got

facial recognition to work” at the World Game Protection Conference at

The M Resort, Las Vegas, NV, at 2:45 pm on Tuesday, February 23, 2016.

Cognitec’s software solution uses advanced face recognition technology

to detect people’s faces in live video streams and compare them to

databases of banned persons. Corporate headquarters are located in Dresden,

Germany; other offices in Miami, FL; Rockland, MA; and Sydney, Australia.

“By working closely with Cognitec and through a process of internal

research, experimentation and analysis, we have found a tipping point,”

said Leroy Daniel. “We are confident that our joint commitment to this

significant project will result in safer casino environments for casino

staff and patrons.”
